DVD Burning / Media question

vbimport

#1

I am having trouble burning 16x media at 8x speed!
i.e. burn processes are finished unsuccessful!
if I burn 16x it is OK!
Is it normal?


#2

“Normal” when you are using cheap media.

What exact media have you burned at what speed with what burner?


#3

I was burning 16x Verbatim DVD-R with Plextor px716a at 8x speed.


#4

Not normal, Verbs should always give good results.

Maybe you could post a logfile (remove serials please).


#5

I don’t know Plextor drives well, but you should try a burn at 12x. With most 16x discs, 12x burns will give great results.


#6

FOR chef

this is odd… DMA’s enabled but in the log file are disabled?
also… I do not know… read the log and tell me what do you think
